The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. One would think that such irresponsible and reckless behavior would have the citizenry aroused and the media reporting the risk. Yet, there is only silence. It is more important to the media whether NFL players stand for the national anthem and that some male politicians show sexual interest in women in inappropriate ways. Insouciant America is walking into Armageddon

Recently released classified documents from WWII show amazing plans to destroy the Soviet Union (and others) with nuclear bombs. What makes this so interesting is that this document was prepared before the end of WWII! The Soviet Union was still our ally at the time this was written. And to think we were always taught that the Soviets started the cold war.

I don’t think it should be against the law to “lie” to the FBI or any other law enforcement agency. If they can lie to us, it should be legal to lie to them. We’ve witnessed many people go to prison for lying. For almost three decades we’ve watched Hillary Clinton being investigated, all to no avail. Anyone who hasn’t paid attention to these investigations is stupid, particularly if they are a public figure. Her defenses over the years are perfect. “I don’t recall” should be the answer to every law enforcement inquiry. How can they argue that you do in fact “recall”? In 2017 it should be impossible for any thinking person to be charged with lying to the police.

I don’t know if this is true. We’ve been seeing this talked about all over the web. Our link is to the original story where it broke. They do point out that it is more likely that the intel didn’t come from Israel, but more likely Jordan. The real dynamic here is not where the intel came from, but more importantly that it has been shared.

Our allies, who were given M1 tanks and used them in wars, have decided to buy Russian T-90s. Perhaps it was the pictures of the US TOW missile bouncing off the front of a T-90 in Syria. Perhaps it was the complexity of the M1 and the difficulty Iraq has in keeping their M1 operational. Perhaps it’s money. You can buy two T-90s for every M1 you buy…. And have $100,000 left over!

The two sources that originated the allegations claiming that Russia meddled in the 2016 election without providing convincing evidence — were both paid for by the Democratic National Committee, and in one instance also by the Clinton campaign: the Steele dossier and the CrowdStrike analysis of the DNC servers. Think about that for a minute. We have long known that the DNC did not allow the FBI to examine its computer server for clues about who may have hacked it – or even if it was hacked – and instead turned to CrowdStrike, a private company co-founded by a virulently anti-Putin Russian. Within a day, CrowdStrike blamed Russia on dubious evidence.

The Neos heads are going to explode (we can only hope). The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is hosting its 25th annual meeting in Vietnam this week. President Trump and President Putin are scheduled to attend. The “leaked” story of the day is that the two of them actually plan to meet face to face and discuss some mutual issues, like North Korea. Imagine how the Neos feel to find out that we might resolve an issue with diplomatic relations instead of at the point of a gun.(1 comment)

This is from a good friend who decided years ago that you’d never get the truth out of the media. So he became very fluent in lots of languages. He reads the media in its original language. If you only have time, watch the first one. It’s almost 30 minutes, so put some time aside. Here’s what he sent:
I am writing to you to draw your attention to two most interesting interviews of two of the most interesting women in Russia: Maria Zakharova, Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, and Margarita Simonyan, editor-in-chief the television news network RT and the international news agency Rossiya Segodnya. What is particularly interesting is that these interviews are intended for a Russian audience and both Zakharova and Simonyan speak with a candid directness which they would probably not exercise in an English-language interview for a foreign audience, primarily out of a sense of courtesy: they would say the very same things, yes, but in a much more diplomatic manner. This time, however, you can tell that both ladies speak their hearts and minds directly and with no attempts as hints or euphemisms. I think that this is exceptionally important as this shows the degree of disgust, contempt, amusement and bewilderment Russian officials today feel when the look at the fetid zoo US politics have become. I strongly recommend you watch both interviews in full.

Russia is not actually interested in undermining American “democracy”. In fact, the United States isn’t particularly concerned either. But Russiagate continues to give mainstream media a narrative that it can sell to its dwindling core audience. However, when it comes to the real linchpin of American power, the almighty Dollar, things are very different. Since it typically takes millions of Dollars at minimum, to even enter major US elections, it is clear that the American electoral system, like just about everything in the US, is as tied in to the power of the Dollar as any other institution. The entire contrived narrative about Russia is really a thinly placed mask which hides the real worry in the US about Russia’s latest geo-strategic moves. Today, Russia’s Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister took part in an official visit to China where both countries signed agreements to expand bilateral trade in national currencies, as opposed to using the US Dollar as the standard transaction currency. … (1 comment)
